I'm Bonnie Ferrante, a hybrid author. My short stories, newspaper articles and columns, magazine articles (ie, Kiki Magazine), and novels have been published traditionally. I have begun simultaneously self-publishing novels and picture books and am doing my own illustrations. I received an Ontario Arts Council Writers Works in Progress grant to complete a YA paranormal historical which will be published by Tradewind Books in British Columbia. My newest book, "Desiccate: Sphere of Vision Book One," was completed with the support of an OAC Northern Arts grant.
